"In 1996 PWRDF Executive Director Robin Gibson hired [Jose Zarate] to visit and consult with Indigenous communities with whom the Anglican Church had worked. These communities identified four areas as strategic ways in which PWRDF could come alongside: restoring language and culture; working with youth; empowering women, health and wellness; and inter-Indigenous networking. Our aim was to build a new partnership based on principles of trust, equal respect and the assurance that indigenous peoples would be the ones who identify the work -- the who, when, where, how and what they would like to accomplish. Later that year  PWRDF hosted a face-to-face Indigenous partners gathering in Six Nations of the Grand River; Ohsweken, Ontario. Together with the 2011 Indigenous Partners Roundtable in Calgary, Alberta, these consultations have shaped our vision and activities".
